    Sad to pass along the news that Mr. Rick Perry of Winglock calls passed away this morning. I know the vast majority of us on here probably have a call of his and he was a always a presence on the forum. From his refuge gang calls just for the pages on here to his wit and humor he will be missed greatly . He was truly a great guy.

    My deepest condolences to Rick's family and friends.
    He was an amazing grandfather, father and husband, as well a great friend of so many. Rest In Peace my friend.

    I'm so very sorry to read this.

    He was a truly good man and shared so much of himself to help others. We had several phone call visits over the years and I regret never meeting him in person.

    They're aren't many like Rick and his passing leaves a huge hole in our waterfowling world, and, amongst his family, friends and all who he touched...

    May God Bless him and his family.

    That son of a gun sent Amanda a free, unexpected spec call, just for the heck of it.
    He also put some acrylic on his lathe and made her a set of pink duck call shaped earrings. Of course at no charge.

    I never met him in person, sorry to say.
